Ivy Global Investors adds more Ucits funds to its offering

New York cabUS-based Ivy Global Investors is making several of its investment strategies, previously available only to US investors of Ivy Funds, available to investors globally using the Ucits structure.

The firm has added three funds to broaden its options for Ucits investors. It already had five Ucits funds in its roster, all domiciled in Luxembourg. The firm’s Balanced Fund seeks to provide total return by investing in a mix of mid to large cap US companies.

Ivy has also added its Emerging Markets Equity Fund and Energy Fund to its Ucits range.

Thomas Butch, chief executive officer of Ivy, says that the addition of these funds will aid the firm’s efforts to expand its offering to global clients.

“Ivy Global Investor's lineup now includes eight funds that mirror investment strategies that have been marketed successfully and resonated with investors in the United States,” said Butch.

Ivy had approximately $106 billion (€98.3billion) in assets under management as at September 30, 2015.
